"From: WT:RFC"Edit

would this not be better just as a spelling variation on bollocks, and then just redirected tobollocks, which has a fuller definition.--Richardb 16:16, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

We don't use "#redirect [[]]" for spelling variations though. A short entry referencing bollocks from ballocks seems appropriate to me. --Connel MacKenzie T C 22:26, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
At the moment there are duplicate articles,though no doubt with differrences. Which is what I'd prefer to see us avoid. I was not suggesting a simple #redirect, but a brief entry saying something like "Spelling variant (archaic) of bollocks"

"I'm a ballocks"Edit

The Joyce citation ("I'm a ballocks") seems go against the idea of this being a plurale tantum, since there is no measure word. Equinox 20:49, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

RFV-sense "A name for a parson." Is this used by anyone other than Joyce? If not, I'll tag it {{context|nonce|used only by James Joyce}}. - -sche (discuss) 21:40, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

If the Joyce usage is the one on the Citations page, then it just seems like it is a slightly more figurative usage of definition 3 at bollocks (I really think bollocks and ballocks should be merged). --WikiTiki89 09:37, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
Duly converted to {{alternative form of}}. - -sche (discuss) 03:48, 29 November 2012 (UTC)
